"First English publication of John Locke's earliest writings on politics ... Locke gave no title to his papers on indifferent things. Their only heading is a statement of the problem discussed. Some convenient short title was required and I have named them Locke's Tracts on Government." The first tract bears the heading: Question: Whether the Civil Magistrate may lawfully impose and determine the use of indifferent things in reference to Religious Worship. The second tract bears the heading: An Magistratus Civilis possit res adiaphoras in divini cultus ritus asciscere easque populo imponere? Affirmatur.
